LALITPUR, May 9: A meeting of mayors and deputy mayors of the 18 municipalities, including two metropolitan cities, of Kathmandu Valley on Wednesday unanimously decided to press the government to dissolve the Kathmandu Valley Development Authority (KVDA), accusing the latter of interfering with the jurisdiction of local units and obstructing their regular work.

KATHMANDU, Dec 4: The ruling of a full bench of the Supreme Court a year ago concerning the Kalimati-Nagdungua road section has halted road widening work that has been going on in Kathmandu Valley for nearly a decade. Government officials state that the roads in Kathmandu and elsewhere will not be widened now. The ruling by justices Kedar Prasad Chalise, Hari Krishna Karki and Purushottam Bhandari simply requires the government to adhere to the Land Acquisition Act regarding compensation while acquiring private land.
